    Anyone else here a fan of Chic?

    They don't write basslines like that anymore in mainstream music :)

    Their music really makes me happy, which is good.

    (what a incoherent post :meh: )
     
  2. Chic are one of my very favourite bands. It is most unfortunate that they got relegated in many people's minds due to the disco backlash. If I am ever able to play the bass line on 'Everybody Dance' I will be a happy man. Bernard Edwards was a great bass player and it was a tragic loss that he died so young.

    Every time I heard "Le Freak" on the radio back in '78 I wanted to scream and my heart started to beat faster. What a catchy tune! Then "Good Times" came and it was another enjoyable tune. I can proudly say that I have both original "C'est Chic" and "Risqué" LPs plus the "Live At Budokan" CD (Bernard Edwards' last performance). I feel sad every time I listen to Bernard saying "I've got the Tokyo flu" after being introduced.

    Drummer Tony Thompson also died too early.

    I like Chic...hearing tunes like "Sao Paolo" brings back memories of a life not yet stressed-out.

  5. Good Times...Funkiest bass line ever.
     
  6. I like good times, but that is the only song i know by them!

    I have been to three pretty fancy weddings in the last few months, and at the receptions for each one the bands played at least a couple of Chic songs.

    From what I saw on the dance floor, EVERYONE is a fan of Chic.
